The space

Casa de Barra is an ideal place for couples, a small family or good friends willing to share a simple nurturing life in touch with nature.

Take a two minute walk to the beach, the small waves and the water are so clear that you may see the fish in their own element, paddle the lagoon and come back to a refreshing dip in your swimming pool.

Live both indoor and outdoor with a large terrace leading into one spacious room divided into living spaces. The bedroom is on one side of the living room and the dining room and kitchen is on the other.

Enjoy the life of a magical Mexican village framed by a pristine beach, a lagoon and a coconut grove living in a white house with simplicity and elegance.

There is a housekeeper who will come as often as you like to clean the house, wash dishes, towels and clothing. In appreciation, please give her modest cleaning fee each time she comes.

The caretaker can pick up from the airport and bring you to the house for a small fee or you can get a taxi.

Located in the fishing village Barra de Potosi, Casa de Barra is 20 mins from Ixtapa/Zihuantanejo airport.

We liked the open entry, outer room, porch deck, lovely shaded garden and most of all - the pool! The caretakers, Raul & Inez picked us up and returned us to the airport at the end of our stay and Sande, the owner is a good communicator. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable vacation!

This darling house is a real Mexican open air type of house nestled in the middle of a small village. The house is clean, but because it is an open air design do not be surprised to find a leaf or two, Bouganinvillea flower, or misc. other "driftings". The house has everything you might need including candles, and sunscreen!. The village sounds are children, dogs, birds. We did not use the pool as the beach is so close and very nice. It was nice to have free internet. The house sleeps 4 but my husband and I loved the two day beds in the open area for siesta and late night reading. I would miss that if there were two more people in the house. November is a bit off season so we were unable to find many restaurants open for dinner. Late lunch works! Sandi was very quick to answer any of my questions. She was a great host!! Raul and Inez take care of the house and are very willing to pick you up at the airport or help in any way. Barre is not a high tourist area and we speak no Spanish and got along, but I would highly recommend at least basic Spanish.

If you want a true Mexican experience, this is the house for you. Nestled in the center of the small town of Barra de Potosi is this little home. We enjoyed sitting out on the back patio in the morning drinking coffee, watching beautiful birds splash in the pool and listening to the sounds of the village - birds tweeting, families talking, chihuahuas barking, chickens crowing and pigs oinking. The pool was a refreshing break in the heat of the day and I made use of the water dumbbells to get in a little exercise. The people of the village are very friendly. Sande was responsive to all questions very quickly.

Sande's space is lovely: comfortable, private and well equipped. It was wonderful to relax and cool off in the pool. The caretakers met us at the airport and were on hand for whatever we needed. Communications with Sande were excellent.

Barra De Potossi was exactly what my husband and I needed to break away from the norm and simply relax and unwind. We spent most mornings and evenings outside on the porch enjoying our surroundings. Although we took advantage of the beach, the pool was lovely to dip are feet in and cool off. Sande’s home was very welcoming and had everything we needed during our stay. The recommendations she provided were helpful and the people who lived nearby were also very helpful. I was a little bummed that the mangos hadn’t come in but there’s still plenty of fruit to consume. We had papaya every morning and the avocados were especially creamy. The local restaurants were delicious and I miss the salsa. Barra De Potossi is not touristy at all and that’s what we enjoyed most about our stay there. If we desired the city, we would hop into a cab and head over to Zihuatanejo which is a 15-20 min cab ride. As mentioned before, a great get-away spot!

Sandy's Place was really nice. Exactly as in the photos. Laura around the corner was particularly helpful. She helped us set up a beautiful snorkeling tour and kayak trip around the lagoon. Raul and his wife were wonderful as well. They met us at the airport and took us back the scenic route. Barra de Potosi was a wonderful village full of nice people. If you want to get away from places that cater to tourists and see a small slice of rural Mexico I would definitely recommend Barra de Potosi. Although we did not have a view of the ocean, the beach was just around the corner and easy to access. Sande was very flexible, easy to communicate with and accommodating. The biggest drawbacks were lack of internet. Laura had a stick that she was kind enough to let us borrow but the connection was spotty at best even when we went down to the beach. That cost me a couple days work (oh well, looks like more relaxation) and Sabrina was unable to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) with her daughter to make sure all was going well. Would I go back to Barra de Potosi? Heck yes! but next time I'll either need to schedule my trip to be away from work or find a better connection (if it exists).

I am a filmmaker who fell in love with Barra de Potosi and this house one Christmas vacation in 2006. Now I travel around the world filming Master Zhi Gang Sha, a doctor of Chinese Medicine and spiritual teacher and healer. I would love to have others share this beautiful and romantic home and enjoy it as much as I do.
